Well, no matter what, I think it's a bad name. Let's stick with 'yield
from'. I'm also returning to the view that return from a generator
used as a task (in Dave Beazley's terms) should be spelled differently
than a plain return. Phillip Eby's 'return from yield with' may be a
little long, but how about 'return from'?
